 Vermont’s oldest continuously operated independent bookshop first opened in November 1935 and has been serving Woodstock and the surrounding towns ever since. We hope that visitors to the shop will be pleasantly surprised by our lovingly curated collection of books, as well as our unique assortment of greeting cards, stationery, bookish gifts, and more. Over the years the Yankee Bookshop has become a destination for many, and we believe that it will continue to be for many years to come. The shop's eighth and current local owners are Kari Meutsch + Kristian Preylowski who purchased the shop in February of 2017 with the help of the owners of Phoenix Books: Michael DeSanto + Renee Reiner. DeSanto and Reiner jumped at the chance to continue the life of Vermont's oldest indie bookstore, and have happily added this shop to their family of four Phoenix Books locations throughout the state. You can read their thoughts on Yankee, Woodstock, and adding one more to the family Kari + Kristian (and their bookselling crew) look forward to helping you find exactly the book you were looking for - or maybe something even better!

When we were still in college together back in the 1970’s, Gina began to write, I began working in bookstores as a bookseller. Over the years, as we raised our kids, I became a publisher sales representative, then sales director, bookstore co-owner (with Gina), then VP of sales for a major publisher. Kids all grown, I left the corporate world, and became a literary agent. Gina has published over thirty books, I’ve lost count on the number of books I have sold and represented. Of all the works we have been associated, nothing makes us more proud than the collaboration with our daughter, Bree.
